Drink Driving Lawyers

Hire an experienced drink driving lawyer with Australian Lawyers and Advocates

Drink driving, also known as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), is a criminal offence in Australia that occurs when an individual operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeding the legal limit. The legal limit for drivers in Australia is 0.05% BAC, meaning that a driver with a BAC of 0.05% or higher can be charged with a drink driving offence.


There are a number of ranges or categories of drink driving offences, which depend on the BAC, such as low range, mid range and high range drink driving.  Different alcohol limits also apply to certain licence categories such as heavy vehicle licences and to learner and provisional licence holders.


It is important to note that in Australia, law enforcement takes drink driving offences very seriously. If you’ve been charged with a drink driving offence, you must seek the professional advice and assistance of a reputable drink driving lawyer. Our team of highly skilled DUI lawyers thoroughly understand the legislation involved in traffic law and other areas that may relate to your driving offence.


We analyse the details of your case and the charges you are facing before providing practical advice and guidance to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. Our compassionate drink driving lawyers will also walk you through the process, fully informing you of your rights and obligations.


We don’t make outlandish claims that we are Australia’s ‘best’ or most ‘leading’ law firm. We prefer to let our results and reputation speak for themselves. Our DUI lawyers have spent years developing positive relationships with magistrates,  judges and our opponents, earning high trust and respect in the industry.

What a drink driving offence entails

Legal consequences of a drink driving offence in Australia can vary depending on the severity of the offence and the specific circumstances surrounding it. Generally, a first-time offender found guilty of drink driving can expect to receive a fine, a disqualification from driving for a specified period or possibly a term of imprisonment. Repeat offenders face more severe penalties, including longer disqualification periods, interlock licence requirements, larger fines and also face longer terms of imprisonment as a maximum penalty.

A conviction for drink driving can have significant consequences beyond the legal penalties. For instance, a conviction and subsequent loss of your licence may impact your ability to maintain or obtain employment and can affect your personal relationships.

What our clients are saying

I would like to acknowledge my sincere gratitude to Mr Jack Leitner. I was represented by another firm in Parramatta Local Court. My previous representatives’ preparation for my case was atrocious. I changed my representation. Within minutes of our first phone call, I knew this man knew his stuff. His preparation, professionalism, research, calming influence, everything, was incredible.
I owe everything to Jack, he has changed my life. You are a legend.


‘Daniel is a great solicitor. I’ve used his service twice now and he really turns up for you.”


‘I can highly recommend Daniel and the team from Australian Lawyers and Advocates. My matter was looked after by Daniel directly and the level of expertise and knowledge provided by Daniel was not only outstanding but kept me at ease throughout the entire process of my case. The guidance provided by Daniel and the team lead to a positive outcome on my behalf. Thank you.”


I would like to recommend Jack Leitner. I want to extend my appreciation for all your efforts during this long and difficult path. Your availability, follow-up, and especially the attentive and prompt replies have been invaluable. Dealing with the law and lawsuits is not easy for the “common” man. The incarceration of my partner during the course of this legal nightmare was devastating and certainly increased my level of stress while having to deal with this matter at the same time. Please know that your kindness and concern has made a difference. Thank you for helping me through this difficult trial. I am so grateful to you for representing my partner in court, and for being a powerful advocate for my partner throughout these difficult times. Thank you so much for your passionate, thoughtful, and brilliant work. To say I am pleased would be a great understatement. Again thank you so much for everything you and your firm has done for me. I really cannot tell you how much it all means to me.

Scott P.
